Ashworth respond to documents that show Covid is spreading faster in England than ‘worst case scenario’

Jonathan Ashworth MP, Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, commenting on documents that show Covid is spreading faster in England than ‘worst-case scenario’, said: 

 “We are in deeply serious situation with Coronavirus spreading with ferocity. 

“Boris Johnson should have used the school half term for a time limited circuit break to push infections down, fix Test & Trace and save lives. 

“It’s urgent Boris Johnson outlines the action he will now take to bring the virus under control and deliver on his promise to get R below 1 quickly.”
